Psychiatry & De-Addiction

Psychiatry & De-Addiction

Apart from the great number of out-patients regularly treated at the Department of Psychiatry, the VHS-Rajaji Centre for De-Addiction has 22 beds to treat alcoholics and drug addicts. The patients are admitted for a minimum period of 2 to 3 weeks, during which they are weaned away from alcohol and drugs, and their liver and cardiac status assessed. The participation and support of their family members is also insisted upon. Detoxification, counselling and psychological (individual and family) assessments are significant aspects of the treatment. Follow up is a very important and primary need for the continued abstinence from alcohol and drugs.
